(This idea is something we’ve heard from customers over time from several of our sources of feedback. We’re posting it here to gauge how well this fits our users’ needs. So please let us know what you think.)

We've heard that it's not very intuitive for some users to remove the outline around text from the text tool. The idea here is that we would add a transparent color swatch to the color picker, a checkbox near the outline picker, and/or renaming "Line Width" to something else.

We have put this under consideration for an upcoming release. Even though it was on the low end of the vote totals, this should be a fairly easy task to clear up a bunch of confusion and inefficiencies. Thank you for voting!

We're moving this from under consideration to planned. Which means it's in development right now. We're going with something pretty much exactly how Joe has it described. A transparent color swatch in the color picker. And we have it in our latest beta build. If anyone is interested in future betas. Let me know: c.larson@techsmith.com. Again, thank you for voting!
